          Stayed at 3 lodges during our trip to Africa. This was our favorite. Density of animals was far greater than other lodges. Location overlooking Chobe River flood plain is spectacular. Guide Bevan was knowledgable, friendly, and articulate.

          We are staying at the NSL in a few weeks. Traditionally, I have been cautious with eating including avoiding non-bottled water, raw fruits and vegetables, etc. However, the NSL looks like they take care with preparation. Does anyone have any advice? Any bad experiences eating and drinking?

          I have read that this lodge is on the edge of Chobe NP, not in it? Does that mean that it is located in a private reserve and the game drives can go off road as long as they are not in the park?
